NOGALES — Quick action i by a youthful bystander is : credited with saving the life ,:0f Theresa Reagan, 8, Sunday •jwhen she ran down a city street with her clothing in flames. Fernandez .Samaniega, 20, who an eyewitness said had "appeared fron nowhere," .(.wrapped his arms around the child, ripped off her flaming blouse and smothered fire in her hair with his hands. Mrs. William J. Reagan, the child's mother, said she had left Theresa and her sis;ter in the car while she went into a grocery store for a loaf of bread just before 6 p.m. .closing time. * Hearing a scream, she ran ptuside and found Theresa •surrounded by a crowd of Fernandez Samaniega young people half a block away. Someone had wrapped a wet towel around the screaming child and her rescuer had disappeared. His identity was not disclosed until an Arizona Republic reporter canvassed the area the following day. Police said they had been too busy escorting the Reagans to the hospital and investigating the cause of the accident—to check on her rescuer. They said it was learned that Theresa had been playing with matches, and the book had ignited and dropped in her lap. Samaniega, an employe trainee at a musical instrument assembly factory here, said he and his friend Guillermo Castro had been sitting on a wall talking when Theresa came running toward him. "We just jumped down and caught her," he said. "My friend helped tear off her blouse while I put out the fire in her hair," he said. "We didn't get burned. It happened too fast." He said Castro's mother had "sent out" the wet towel. Mrs. Reagan said the doctors had told her Theresa may be hospitalized for three or four weeks and that skin grafting will be necessary. The child suffered first-, second-and third-degree burns over most of her back and on one side. Mrs. Reagan and the children arrived from their ranch in Montana just last week to join her husband, employed as a heavy equipment operator on a local construction project. jUofA college of medicine gets $250,000 grant for scar tissue research TUCSON - A $250,000 Na tional Institute of Health 'grant has been awarded to _i i ' ^EARTHQUAKE IN GREECE * ATHENS (UPI) - The National Observatory yesterday Reported an earthquake of moderate intensity 103 miles west southwest of Athens at §:25 a.m. The quake measured 4.5 on the Richter fccale, which runs to 8.6. the University of Arizona College of Medicine for research on biological control of scar tissue.

HARRIGAN Northern Arizona Burreau FLAGSTAFF — How does a tourist find out about cities in northern Arizona? Why does he stop at one and not another? How does he rate these towns? The answers to these questions and many others are contained in an "Interstate Highway 40 Study" just released by the Flagstaff Chamber of Commerce. It was done last August and September, at the chamber's request under the direction of Dr. E. F. Grape and Steve Hallam of Northern Arizona University's college of business administration faculty. It may be a little disconcerting to communications media, but the largest single group of travelers first became acquainted with Flagstaff by road map. Of 938 interviewed, 297 found out about Flagstaff by map, while only 45 learned about it in a newspaper, 33 in a magazine, 74 from the radio, 78 on thhe billboard, 159 recommended by merchants. The rest came to Flagstaff because of NAU, a tourist guidebook or a visit to the Grand Canyon. The survey, taken largely by NAU students, showed the husband was the first person to suggest a stop in 60 per cent of cases involving families, the wife about 30 per cent and the children about 10 per cent. Traveling as groups of friends, a woman was first in 45 per cent of cases and a man in 55 per cent. Vacationing was the major reason for traveling in northern Arizona, accounting for 80 per cent of responses. Business and "other," such as visiting friends and relatives, accounted for the rest. Nearly 15 per cent interviewed at Flagstaff named the Grand Canyon as the major reason for being In the area. Reasons for stopping varied from city to city, with some communities emerging as "food cities" more than others. People stopping in northern Arizona cities primarily to eat ranged from 81 per cent for Winslow visitors to 34 per cent in Flagstaff. Compared to the others, both Flagstaff and Kingman had high percentages of people stopping to sleep: 31 per cent (of 2,475 interviwed) at Flagstaff and 51 per cent (of 134 interviewed) at Kingman. Flagstaff was almost evenly divided into thirds among those stopping for food, sleep and gas, while 34 per cent stopped for food at Kingman and only 15 per cent for gas. There were more eaters than sleepers, and food stoppers averaged 69 per cent at Williams, 81 per cent at Winslow and 77 per cent at Hoi- brook, while sleepers averaged only 6 per cent at Williams, 15 per cent at Winslow and 16 per cent at Holbrook. Treavelers are a pretty casual bunch when it comes to planning, the survey revealed. Forty-five per cent, or 1,225 of 2,725 polled, answered "no" to the' question, "Did you definitely plan to stop in this city?" while 1,500, or 55 per cent, said yes. Flagstaff and Kingman ranked at 76 and 66 per cent respectively among those communities planned as a stop, while Williams stood at 29 per cent, Winslow at 17 per cent and Holbrook at 24 per cent as planned stops. Market analysts may tear out what few remaining gray hairs they have over the majority answer to "What specif- ic reasons other than eat, sleep and gas made you stop in this town and not in another?" The largest group, or 1,521 of the 3,845 interviewed from Holbrook to Kingman, answered "no particular reason." Still more frustrating, the next largest group, 512, fell into the category "other," which could be anything from a five-minute bathroom stop to permanent settlement. Of those visiting all cities except Flagstaff, 62 per cent said they would just as likely have stopped off at another city, 52 per cent said "no" and 31 per cent said "yes." Williams was even up with 43 per cent "yes" and 43 per cent "no." The rest were "can't really say." 2 U.S. ships collide LONTON (UPI) - The U.S. Navy yesterday reported a collision between the U.S. destroyer Eugene Greene and the U.S. fleet oiler Waccamaw in the eastern Mediterranean. A Navy spokesman reported both ships suffered minor damage and there were no injuries.
